What do a slingshot paintball biathlon, snowshoe tours, a snow obstacle course, a cross-country ski slalom race and a women's frying pan toss all have in common? They are among the dozen events going on at the second WinterFest at Coopers Rock State Forest. WinterFest will be from 10am - 4pm Feb 9 and is sponsored by the Coopers Rock Foundation.
This festival will have events for children and adults. All events are free, but hot chocolate and chili will be offered for sale. Registration and most of the events will be held close to the front parking lot. For the most adventurous, there will be guided hikes to the Overlook, plus snowshoe and ski tours.
